Can you explain why you say that it's easier to live an antisocial, life than a prosocial decent life?

False dichotomy.

Then it's your false dichotomy

quote:
The dark side is easier, more attractive, and less restrictive than is the narrow path

So why do you claim that it's easier to lead a' bad' life than a good 'life'?

Do you find crime easy to commit? Are you sure this isn't just some unquestioned religious verbiage that you've swallowed whole without actually thinking about it?

Re: Topic
Let's turn that around. Do you feel that your money and investments are freely obtained and are your right to responsibly manage? If it could be proven that exploitation of other nations throughout History has led to an artificially constructed advantage, (I can call it Western Privilege) would you be prepared to renegotiate a global consensus as to sharing of resources?

Let's not. How about you answer my question?

ffs Phat, what are you talking about? Try to answer the question, it was simple enough. Why do you think it's harder to lead a decent life than a 'bad' one? That's not my experience, is it yours?
